Classic Motorsports needs an M roadster for 1/13/05 in Vero, FL

Hello everyone, a Bimmerfest reader saw my post on another forum and suggested I try here as well. We're doing an article for Classic Motorsports magazine in conjunction with the Speed show Dream Car Garage on BMW roadsters past and present, but our M roadster fell through and we're hoping to find a replacement for this coming Thursday, Jan. 13th. We'll be driving, taping and photographing the cars near Vero Beach, Florida.

If you've got an M roadster that's in great shape and will be able to join us, please email me at scott@classicmotorsports.net and if you've got one handy, include a single photo of the car with the email (one photo only please). Thanks very much, and if you know someone who would fit the bill please let them know we're looking. Sorry for the short notice,

Scott Lear

Hi Scott!

There are more M3s around here than you could shake a stick at,lots of z3s but I only see four or so M roadsters on a regular basis.A couple of nice M coupes but that's obviously NFG for a roadster show.Where are you going to be shooting down here? You might also want to stop by Wire Wheel in Vero,No bimmers but an eclectic inventory of British iron.Lotus Ginnetta,Marcos etc.Good Luck!

Great, thanks for sending out the word, worst case we can get a car from a dealership, but it's always more fun to use someone's car, who doesn't want to see their ride in a magazine and on TV?

I can be there in 7 hours. Who is going to detail it upon my arrival? Lot of bugs between Mexico Beach and there.

Oops, I just noticed you asked for a single photo and I sent you a half-dozen or so. This wasn't a reading comprehension test was it?

Good luck Bill, I know at least one other roadster who is interested. Let us know if you're chosen!

Scott just let me know that he found a car closer.

I'm sure it is some ragged out POS with rust and spinners.

Haha, I appreciate your enthusiasm, but to get there by tomorrow morning would be quite a haul from where you live! It's nothing personal I assure you, the car looked beautiful in the photos you sent (all of them )

We did find a car close to the test sight, and we've even got a 2001 BMW Z3, so we'll have both M and non-M attendees. Be sure to keep an eye out for a future issue of Classic Motorsports covering some roadsters with the Roundel on the nose....
